YesAsia Editorial Description

Traditional Korean garb turns into the stage for palace intrigue in the luscious period romp The Royal Tailor. How to Use Guys with Secret Tips director Lee Won Suk's sophomore effort gathers the all-star cast of Han Suk Kyu (The Berlin File), Ko Su (Way Back Home), Park Shin Hye (Miracle in Cell No. 7), Yoo Yeon Seok (Whistle Blower) and Lee Yoo Bi (Pinocchio) to tailor and don an eye-catching array of traditional royal attire of the Joseon court. Han Suk Kyu and Ko Su face off as rival tailors of the old and new guard, while Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye reign as King and Queen. The Royal Tailor won for Best Art Direction and Costume Design at the 52nd Daejong Film Awards.

Master royal tailor Dol Seok (Han Suk Kyu) has spent years carefully honing his skills and properly working his way to his current position. Even the new King (Yoo Yeon Seok) has acknowledged his craftsmanship. Just as everything seems to be going Dol Seok's way, an unconventional upstart enters the palace and ruffles the status quo. A cocky and talented outsider who doesn't abide by the rules, Kong Jin (Ko Su) quickly makes a splash with his stylish, unconventional designs and finds a muse in the beautiful but neglected Queen (Park Shin Hye). Kong Jin only wants to tailor, but in the palace, even clothing becomes a weapon for power play.

Professional Review of "The Royal Tailor (2014) (DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

August 6, 2015

This professional review refers to The Royal Tailor (DVD) (Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
After shaking up the Korean romantic comedy genre with the quirky and popular How to Use Guys with Secret Tips, director Lee Won Suk now turns his attention to another of the country's most tried and tested forms, the historical costume drama. As its title suggests, The Royal Tailor is a costume drama in the truest sense, revolving around the rivalry between two court tailors during the Joseon era. For his second outing Lee gathered an all-star cast, headlined by actors Han Suk Kyu (The Berlin File) and Ko Su (Way Back Home), with support from Park Shin Hye (Miracle in Cell No. 7), Yoo Yeon Seok (Whistle Blower) and Lee Yoo Bi (Pinocchio).

The film opens with Han Suk Kyu as long-established royal tailor Dol Seok, whose career has seen him patiently maintaining his position and faithfully serving a line of monarchs, including the new, often volatile King (Yoo Yeon Seok). His carefully ordered existence is thrown into turbulence when a young clothes maker called Kong Jin (Ko Su) arrives at the palace, instantly finding favour and capturing the hearts of the court thanks to his colourful and unorthodox designs. Unfortunately, Kong Jin takes a liking to the Queen (Park Shin Hye), which, not unexpectedly, has far-reaching consequences.

Undoubtedly the biggest challenge facing Lee Won Suk with The Royal Tailor is trying to stand out from the incredibly crowded playing field of similarly themed Korean historical dramas, with seemingly every month turning up at least a couple of solidly-made though essentially generic offerings. Sadly, he doesn't quite manage this, and as can probably be guessed from the familiar sounding plot above, the film lacks any kind of originality, somewhat of a surprise given Lee's refreshing and creative debut How to Use Guys, which succeeded precisely due to its imaginative avoidance of convention. Here, the story is predictable to a fault, right down to its last act dive into heavy handed melodrama, recalling a variety of other recent genre efforts, in particular Han Jae Rim's enjoyable Song Kang Ho vehicle The Face Reader.

This isn't to say that The Royal Tailor isn't engaging, and Lee does weave an interesting tale of the usual rascally but good at heart fellow falling foul of court ambition and politics. While Kong Jin isn't exactly an innovative or substantial protagonist, his relationships with the more interesting Dol Seok and the Queen do have depth, and the film wins a few points for not overdoing the inevitable forbidden love theme. Things are a little drawn out in places, with a few too many anecdotal tangents (including modern day bookend scenes which serve no discernible purpose other than to distract from the period setting), though some tight editing helps, as does a faster pace than normally seen in such films. The film also benefits from not taking itself too seriously, and it's definitely at its best when drifting into comic territory, with some very funny scenes and set pieces providing the highlights. Lee again proves himself to have a great sense of timing and feel for gags, and he skilfully combines the laughs with the drama without undermining either, at least until the final third.

The main draw here is likely the fantastic visuals and production design, and in these aspects The Royal Tailor really excels. Lee makes great use of what must have been a sizeable budget, with some of the best and more luxurious looking costumes seen in a Korean period film for quite some time. The attention to detail is quite stunning, and without wishing to reduce it to a fashion parade, much of the enjoyment here comes from marvelling at the procession of stunning outfits which grace the screen. Lee makes the switch from the modern setting of How to Use Guys to the Joseon era with ease and grace, and the film is both incredibly handsome and convincing throughout.

This gives The Royal Tailor a considerable lift, and for many viewers will be more than enough to distract from its lack of originality and other flaws. To be fair, there's really nothing wrong with the film, it being well-made, acted and sumptuously designed, and the clearly talented Lee Won Suk is only held back by playing things safe and an overreliance on familiar genre themes and plotting - hopefully his next offering will see him return to the eccentricity of How to Use Guys with Secret Tips.
